Rocklin, Calif., – William Jessup University, the Sacramento area’s only residential four-year WASC accredited private university, will launch a new “School of Education” during a ribbon cutting ceremony at the growing university on Thursday, February 5 at 1 pm.
The School of Education delivers both graduate and undergraduate academic preparation to earn degrees and credentials preparing students to teach, lead organizations and significantly contribute to the field of education.
One of the goals of the school is to prepare undergraduate and graduate professionals to explore and develop character and ethical behavior to teach in schools throughout the world.
“The school purposely embeds the development of character into all of our programs and courses,” said the school’s Dean, Tim Gillespie. “We prepare graduates to be excellent educators who exhibit and teach character qualities that administrators and superintendents are looking for to represent their school districts, classrooms and most importantly positively impact the lives of the students they serve.”
WJU’s School of Education has broad and sophisticated institutional capabilities focused on evolving capacities and pursuing the needs within the educational and training communities. It is committed to providing dynamic undergraduate and graduate programs, conducting and connecting educational research to learning, collaborating and facilitating professional development opportunities, and continually cultivating professional relationships and partners locally, regionally, nationally and globally.
The program is unique because credentialing candidates learn to apply researched-based best practices and find early access to the classroom.
Candidates in these programs demonstrate excellent first time pass rates on state mandated testing. Undergraduate candidates can expect to complete their undergraduate degree and credential in four years. Graduate candidates can complete their credential in twelve months.
Other areas of emphasis for the School of Education include research and professional development. Research projects will look at topics such as school dropout prevention, literacy, character development and leadership. Professional development opportunities for students include utilizing a cohort model; workshops, conferences and expositions including STEM related activities.
We have NO AFFILIATION with print, politics or BIG media.

Welcome to the brighter side.
